Chloe: Hey, yourself. What happened to you? You look like you were dragged under a bus.
Philip: Well, I sorta feel like that, too. Somebody kidnapped me.
Philip: Then they drugged me and...I don't remember the rest.
Chloe: What are you talking about? Did you call the police?
Philip: No. I just woke up and this guy said I could go. The next thing I know, I'm standing in the park, it's kinda cold. I remembered I was gonna meet you. I'm not even sure that it really happened. I think it was my uncle Deimos--
Philip: I don't know. Maybe not. [Sighs] My mind's blank. Whenever I try to remember anything, I get nothing but this...this... this feeling.
Chloe: What kind of feeling?
Philip: That maybe Deimos knows you're carrying Daniel and Nicole's baby.
Deimos: Well, there she is. Lovely as ever.
Nicole: Flattery will only get you so far, mister. And that is far enough.
Nicole: Hello. [Laughs]
Deimos: You know, I'm thinking we should dine in tonight, maybe watch one of those old Christmas movies. Apparently I'm the last person on the planet who hasn't seen "it's a wonderful life."
Nicole: Well, you better treat yourself then.
Nicole: I, however, am off to Chicago to see Chloe.
Deimos: Oh, really?
Deimos: So she hasn't run off again?
Nicole: She doesn't have to hide from you anymore, remember? She's back at her old place. We've been texting. In fact, she wants to meet up. And when I tried to get ahold of her yesterday, parker actually answered the phone and said that she was going out with someone tonight for dinner at her favorite restaurant. That's would be Capolino's, so I'm thought I would surprise her and hope she'd be happy to see me.
Deimos: All right.
Nicole: So we might be on our way back.
Deimos: You know, maybe I should come with you.
Nicole: Are you out of your mind?
JJ: I figured if we waited longer there wouldn't be any good ones left.
Jennifer: No, I'm so glad you got it tonight. It's just perfect. I'm gonna go to the attic and get the decorations. I love Christmas.
JJ: Yeah. It's gonna be special, mom.
Jennifer: This year's gonna be great, yes.
JJ: Abigail's back.
Jennifer: Yeah, she's back, she's well, and she's with Chad right now telling him that she's alive.
JJ: Good. Then I won't have to keep it a secret from Gabi anymore.
Chad: What-- what the hell are you doing, André?
André: What is the matter with you? How can you be so reckless?
Chad: Sor--excuse me?
André: I'm sorry, but this is--what you're doing here is totally unacceptable.
Chad: Nobody cares what you think! How many times do I gotta tell you to stop barging into my house? You don't live here anymore! Leave!
André: I just-- you don't-- [Stammering]
Chad: Go! Bastard, right?
Abigail: [Sobbing] [Panting] [Sobbing] Hey there, hi.
JJ: Are you sure there isn't you can do? Look, man, I'm gonna level with you. I really love this woman and it's important that I give her this on Christmas. Yeah, I know I missed the deadline and you can't deliver, but... dude, thank you! I appreciate it. I'll be right there. Okay. Lani.
Lani: Wow. Ten minutes back in this town and look who I run into.
Chad: Okay, look, I'm so sorry. That...that was...
Gabi: Yeah, yeah.
Chad: That wasn't planned. That...I don't-- that shouldn't have happened. I mean, what--I don't know what the hell André's doing. He's just kinda continuing to come in here and playing this brotherly love routine like he's gonna come in here and he has something important to tell me that he's just gotta walk in and interrupt me. Look, what does he have to say? What--he's gotta tell me something, show me something-- whatever, gonna act like I just ruined his life?
Gabi: He's upset. I get it--he's upset because, you know, what we didn't shouldn't have happened.
Chad: Why not?
Gabi: Because, first of all, I haven't even told JJ that I'm giving up on him yet, okay? And--oh, my God, André was really mad. I don't feel good. I don't feel good about this.
Chad: Why don't you feel good? You're not his brother. You don't even like him. I barely even like him.
Gabi: He told me that someone like me shouldn't be around someone like you.
Chad: Excuse me?
Gabi: He's worried about your image. I'm an ex-con.
Chad: That's the reason why you quit.
Gabi: It's one of the reasons.
Chad: That son of a bitch!
Gabi: Chad, stop, listen--
Chad: What? What? Okay, you're right. I'm gonna deal with that later. Right now, you and I, we're gonna finish this. You and I, we're gonna... deal with us.
Chloe: Come on. I need you to concentrate. Why would you tell Deimos about the baby?
Philip: Slow down, okay? I'm not even sure it was Deimos.
Chloe: No, no, no, it probably was. No one else would be that cruel. But it's so weird. Why would he come at you like that? How could he even know about the baby? The only people who know are you, me, and my mother.
Philip: And I never said a word. And I'm sure your mom wouldn't either. And like I said, I'm not even sure that I said anything when I was drugged.
Chloe: Yeah, but you said you had a feeling.
Philip: Well... it's more like a worry.
Chloe: But still.
Chloe: Just proves my point. Nicole would hook up with him. That she would choose to be with someone who would kidnap and drug his own nephew. Just drives me nuts that she's so blind to see what he's capable of. As long as she's with Deimos, there's no way that she can have this baby.
Philip: Chloe, it's hers.
Nicole: Do you remember the last time you showed up to see Chloe uninvited, how happy she was--how happy she was to get dragged along to yet another paternity test?
Deimos: All right, well, this time, I'm hoping to apologize and offer up a truce.
Nicole: Deimos, not this time. Please, I have one goal. And that is to get Chloe to come back here with me and to have her baby here in Salem and live here with parker and the baby and be my friend.
Nicole: Okay, that's more than one goal.
Deimos: You know what, you're right. You're right. You should do it alone.
Nicole: Thank you.
Nicole: You'll be missed.
Deimos: As will you. Wait a minute. Nicole? Where's your ring?
Nicole: Well, um... that was another difficult decision but I thought it was time. And I know Daniel would want me to be happy and he wouldn't want me to keep living in the past.
Deimos: And are you happy?
Nicole: I am.
Deimos: Well, then, that's all that's important.
Nicole: You know, things with you are so good it's scary. There's no secrets, no hidden agenda. No problems.
Deimos: Oh, hey.
Nicole: That's okay. Actually was just saying goodbye. I am going to go visit Chloe in Chicago.
Brady: Give her my best.
Nicole: Will do.
Nicole: Excuse me.
Brady: You know what? There's a big snowstorm coming through Chicago. I don't know if you've seen the news--it's all over.
Nicole: What? That's amazing. Snow in Chicago in the middle of winter?
Brady: Nicole, let me drive you.
Nicole: What? No.
Nicole: You'll be safer. Let me drive.
Nicole: I'll be fine. Besides, need you to stay here and keep this handsome man company. His heart will ache until I return.
Deimos: It will, it will.
Deimos: Drive carefully, all right?
Brady: You okay with that?
Deimos: What do you think? She's going off to see Chloe. Totally unaware that the woman is carrying her and Daniel's baby. Who knows what the hell she's gonna tell her.
Brady: You know, when you get upset like this, you tend to act out. You're not gonna do anything rash, are you?
Philip: Chloe, I seriously doubt I said anything about the baby. Having my memory wiped like that, it's just--it's traumatic. I'm just kind of... on guard, worried.
Chloe: It'll be okay.
Philip: Hey, how 'bout if you and parker and I take off? Go somewhere nice, start a new life.
Chloe: You would just give up your job and leave to help me?
Philip: I'd do anything for you, Chloe. I love you.
Chloe: Thank you.
Philip: It's always wonderful when you say "I love you" to someone and they say that.
Chloe: Um... I'm sorry, I can't lie to you. Philip, I really do care about you, I do. And God knows we have a history, but... the way that I feel right now for you isn't love. [Sighs] And I can't run away with you. If I did, I would just... I would be taking advantage and I'd be selfish, and I won't do that to you.
Philip: Okay. Understood. Thank you for being honest.
Chloe: I'm sorry.
Philip: I know. I am too obviously. But it's better to just get it right out there on the table, you know, deal with it, right? [Sighs] Sure makes things clear for me, where I should go, what I should do. Suddenly I've lost my appetite too.
Chloe: I hate it that I hurt you.
Philip: Hey, if honesty hurts... listen, I hope everything works out for you. You're a great mom to parker. Whether or not you keep this baby...
Chloe: I'm gonna have to.
Philip: Right. So. You know what I'm going to have to do? Go. Try to focus on something else.
Chloe: I'm sorry, Philip, really.
Philip: Don't be. But staying here... being with you, knowing that... if you ever need me for anything, you have my number. And if I see it's you, I'll always answer. You know that, right? Always. Take care.
JJ: What a surprise. Are you home for the holidays?
Lani : Florida is my home now, remember?
JJ: No, I mean you're here with your family, right?
Lani: Right. When my dad got shot, I was stuck on a case I couldn't walk away from, so now I'm here to make up for it.
JJ: Good for you. Listen, I would love to get coffee or something, catch up, but right now, I gotta run--I gotta go pick up a present I just ordered for my girlfriend, so I'll give you a call and we'll get together, okay?
Lani: You know what? Actually, I should probably spend as much time as possible with my family, so... we'll have to put it off until next time. See ya.
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, let's talk.
Chad: Good, okay. Good, yeah, because if then-- if we don't, we're both-- we both know what's gonna happen. And we're gonna pretend like this never happened and I'm sorry I'm not sorry. But I don't regret kissing you. I wanted to do it.
Gabi: Me too.
Chad: And since the first time I kissed you, I can't stop thinking about it.
Chad: And I know that things aren't the way they should be.
Gabi: Because of JJ?
Chad: And Abby, and I'm-- you know what, and I know it's crazy, but I shouldn't have to feel guilty anymore. I've said my piece. I've said my good-byes. I don't--I shouldn't have to love a ghost for the rest of my life. I deserve--what I want is something real.
Gabi: Chad, I'm real.
Abigail: [Sighs] No, it's...I have to go. I have to tell him that I'm coming back. I have to.
From the first moment you met
Valerie: This will ruin my appetite.
Abe: Well, you know what-- oh, hey!
Abe: I thought you wouldn't be here till midnight!
Lani: I got lucky at the airport. It's so good to see you.
Abe: Oh, it's so good to see you too. It's been so long. Oh, hey, um... Dr. Grant, this is my daughter. My daughter, Lani. Detective Lani price.
Lani: Nice to meet you.
Valerie: Oh, my pleasure. My pleasure.
Lani: So I'm assuming you're the Dr. Grant that saved my father's life.
Valerie: Oh, well...
Abe: Yes, she did. More than once.
Valerie: I did my job. Your dad did the rest.
Lani: Well, I gotta say, it's really nice to see that my dad found someone special to be with.
Chad: I-I know how real you are. Believe me. I-I do. And I want this--
Chad: But...the timing.
Gabi: Okay, timing. Because I had a fight with JJ and then I came running to you?
Chad: That's kind of what happened.
Gabi: I've come running to you before, other times. Sometimes because, uh... I don't know, just wanted to be around you. I don't think it's a rebound thing, Chad.
Chad: Okay, but I know how much you-- you know, you loved JJ. And feelings like that don't disappear overnight. And besides, I've got my own issues.
Gabi: Hey, um, why do we keep throwing up roadblocks? I mean, I just think that what really matters is how we feel right now and... I don't know, that's what's important for me.
Chad: Me too. [Stammering] Me...me too. And yes, obviously, we have our problems, but these feelings aren't going away, so maybe, I think, I don't know, sit down, have, like, real talk. Get honest... everything.
Gabi: Okay. Okay.
Chad: Wait, like, right now?
Gabi: Okay, I was really committed to JJ.
Gabi: Then he goes off and he cheats on me with a girl that he doesn't even remember her name because he was so drunk. I forgive him, I say okay. As long as we have no more secrets. That was our agreement.
Chad: And then now you think that he's hiding something.
Gabi: Yeah, I know he is. I just don't know what it is, but...what I do know is that this is-- this is who he is. This is what he does. And I don't wanna... I don't wanna be with a man like that. And then... I don't know, I... guess it feels like I turned around and there were all these feelings for you. JJ's out of my life. And Abigail... I just think that... I just think there's nothing standing in the way.
Chad: I don't know if I'm ever gonna be able to love anyone the way I loved your mother but I know she would want me to try. She would want us to be happy. So that's exactly what we're gonna do.
Chad: I know. I know.
Abe: I think you might be reading too much. Valerie and I are friends.
Theo: Hey, Lani.
Lani: Oh, come here!
Abe: Look who's here!
Theo: I'm so glad you're here.
Lani: Me too.
Abe: So where's Claire? You two were on a date, no?
Theo: Yeah, um, but you left your wallet, so I figured I'd better bring it to you.
Abe: Oh, thank you. I had no idea. Hey, uh, why don't you both join us?
Lani: Sounds good to me. Come on, Theo. I'd really like to get to know this friend of dad's a little better.
Theo: Well, no, Lani, wait. I really gotta talk to you alone.
Lani: Theo? Probably just Christmas present related. We'll be back.
André: Dear, you're freezing.
Abigail: I only just now realized how cold I am. [Shivering] Which I guess kinda makes sense. I am...dead.
André: No, no, you're not. You're very much alive. What you saw tonight was an aberration. A man who was just confused and alone. He wants his family back together with you at its center.
Abigail: You see this?
Abigail: This. That's all I am to Chad now. I'm just a... memory. 'Cause I'm dead. [Hyperventilating]
André: No, no, no. Hey, hey, Abigail, I'm here. I'm here, just breathe. Just breathe.
André: Are you-- are you taking any pills? You're not having a panic attack?
Abigail: No, no, I'm not. I'm just--I'm just really sa--sad. [Gasping]
André: I know, just... just...just... look at me. Focus.
Abigail: My heart really hurts. But I'm not going to--
André: What? Not gonna what? You're not gonna cry? Go ahead and cry. Tears are good. They're a release. Because you are hurting.
Abigail: No. I'm not gonna let it destroy me.
André: No, I'm so... I'm so happy to hear you say that, because it means that you're not going to run. It means you're gonna stay and fight and fight for Chad.
Gabi: It's not like I was never happy with JJ. I was--he's... he's warm and sweet, but it just... felt like we were always trying to work on something, like we were trying to be this perfect thing or we were just trying to check we were connecting.
Chad: So what? So I'm not so perfect so you don't have to check on me?
Gabi: No, you're easy.
Chad: I'm easy?
Gabi: No I mean you're easy to be around and I don't have to be careful what I say when I'm around you.
Chad: Except when we talk about our feelings.
Gabi: Yeah, which I'm doing right now.
Chad: And I make jokes to avoid it. But you're right, you know? We're open, free. I'm a DiMera, so that-- that can cause a problem. But having you around, saying what you think, makes it easier for me to be who I want to be.
Gabi: You're doing a great job, okay? You're doing an amazing job at fixing your father's company and getting rid of all that illegal stuff.
Chad: Trying to, at least.
Gabi: I know it's not easy. And I know that people are always gonna assume the worst, especially because of your last name. There's people that don't even forgive me for what I've done.
Chad: Yeah, but that's crazy because you're a wonderful mother, you're a great friend. Super talented. It's a shame you're terrible to look at.
Gabi: Oh! Wow, you're great. I love it when...
Chad: I know.
Gabi: Even when you're not giving me compliments like that, you're great!
Chad: Thank you.
Gabi: Yep. I feel like... when I'm around you, I just--I can see myself the way you see me.
Chad: Good. [Stammers] Look, okay, so, when I was with Abby, there was always so much drama. Ben, hallucinations, burning buildings, her family. And... you know, it... how do I put this? With you, it's easy. And I feel young again. Sorry, you have... I feel in the moment.
Gabi: In this moment, do you feel like you wanna kiss me again? (Man) my dad and I have the same eyes.
Theo: No, it's not sweet, Lani. It's not sweet at all. Okay, look, I saw dad kissing that woman. That?
Theo: Look, she's a liar. I heard her myself. Okay, she was on the phone with some guy and she told him that she was in new York, not Salem.
Lani: Okay, that's a little weird.
Theo: Okay, then I checked her messages on her phone. She was telling some guy named Eli that she misses him so much.
Lani: Theo, there could be a lot of reasonable explanations.
Theo: Lani, no, no. She's hiding something, all right? Claire and I are gonna figure out what it is.
Valerie: You know what I mean?
Victor: I've seen that look before. It says something very sharp. Very clear.
Deimos: Does it really?
Victor: You're considering killing someone. Who?
Chloe: Angela, you're a saint. No, seriously, you are. Three days is a long time. I know, I know. Simon and parker love each other, but still. No, I owe you so much. Once this baby's born, I promise I will return the favor. Okay, yeah, please, put him on. Hi, honey. Are you having fun? Oh, that's terrific. Just keep having fun, okay all right, mommy loves you. I miss you so much. Okay, bye.
Chad: Yeah, I-I always wanna kiss you.
Gabi: But you're not doing it.
Chad: [Stammers] Well, consider me old-fashioned, but I think that you're vulnerable right now, so.
Gabi: And you wouldn't wanna take advantage of that?
Chad: You are so beautiful.
Gabi: No, I'm not.
Chad: No, I'm serious. Like... I mean, between wanting to kiss you... and just getting lost while looking at your eyes, I just--it terrifies me that I can't trust myself to read the situation right. Because I-I know I'm ready to move on. God, you are so beautiful.
André: So let me take you back now? What do you say? Take you to your husband, to your little boy--
Abigail: No, no! I'm never going back there. I love Chad, I... I do, and I always will. But this is what is best for him. Oh, gosh, when I came back, I-I saw them together. And I realized, gosh, he's ready.
André: You're misinterpreting a momentary--
Abigail: But I was selfish. My God, I was so-- I'm such a weak, needy person that I wanted to have him back no matter what.
André: Now listen to me. Just stop it. You're misinterpreting what happened. A momentary weakness by a lonely man who misses you terribly.
Abigail: Look, I know why you helped me escape. I know why you helped me fake my death--you told me. You wanted to be the man-- you wanted to give Chad his dream back, so that you would be the hero and he would trust you with the family money.
André: I suppose so. I was just hoping my brother and I would be reconciled. And I know I used some underhanded ways... but what's important here is that Chad misses you. He's going to be so ecstatic when he sees you.
Abigail: I know... I know that you think that. I mean, that's what my mom thinks too. But I just... I know... I know that you're doing this for me, not because of what you're gonna get out of it, and I truly-- I believe that you want Chad to be happy. And even though we had that little freak out earlier, deep down, I think you want me to be happy too.
André: Yeah. I do.
Abigail: So that's why I'm saying you have gotta see things the way that I see them. This is what is best for Chad. The thing that's gonna make him happy is not me. Look, I appreciate everything that you've done. I do so much. Thank you. But the best thing for Chad is if I never come back. Hey there, hi.
Lani: I'm just saying, okay? Getting involved in your dad's love life-- I mean, is that really what you want to do?
Theo: I mean, I have to protect him, don't I?
Lani: Not really. He can take care of himself.
Theo: Lani, he doesn't even know she's lying.
Lani: Theo, things aren't always what they seem. Okay, people are complicated, and sometimes they tell lies to protect someone they love.
Theo: Okay. Okay, I get it. You're a cop. You want proof. Okay, but if I give you the proof, will you help me keep her away from him?
Lani: Count me in.
Theo: Thank you.
JJ: Gabi's gonna love it. It's perfect.
Gabi: Have you thought maybe it was...me who wasn't good enough for you?
Gabi: Well, good, because then we're a perfect fit. Plus, I never feel nervous around you.
Chad: Good. So then we'll just... take things...slow.
Gabi: Yeah. Nice and slow.
Chad: Mm-hmm, I can live with that. How slow?
Jennifer: Abigail? Baby, what is it? What happened?
Abigail: When I got to the mansion, I...I... I walked in on Chad kissing Gabi Hernandez.
Jennifer: Oh, God. What?
Abigail: Yeah. Not my best day, really. So I... but I-I wasn't even surprised because I knew-- I knew that they were together. I told you that I did. I told you that and I just thought-- God, I did not wanna believe that it was true, mom.
Jennifer: This doesn't make any sense. I mean, JJ and Gabi, they--they worked things out. They're back together.
Abigail: Then JJ's about to find out what it's like to be the one who's being cheated on.
Jennifer: Why would he do this? Why would Chad do such a thing?
Abigail: Mom, he didn't even do anything wrong. I-I'm dead. I mean, that's... I'd dead! Okay, the man built a plaque and a memorial in the square for me--I mean, what do I expect? I can't wait for him to just hold on. I mean, he moved on. And that--God, I just-- I never--I just never should have come back to Salem. This is--
Jennifer: Don't say that. Honey, don't say that, please.
Abigail: Mom... Mom, it's okay, because you know what? Grandma said that I could go and I could stay with her as long as I want, so that's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna go and I'm gonna-- I'm gonna build a life for myself, and you and JJ, you can come and you can visit, but you just gotta keep everything secret, okay? Mom, don't cry, please. Please don't cry. This is what I want. But I love... I love Chad. God, I love that man so much. And...and this is what I wanna do. I wanna do this for him, and for Thomas, I do. Look, I'm not even crying. [Laughs]
Deimos: If you must know, I was thinking about Chloe.
Victor: Ah. Well, trust me, Deimos. You're not the first person that ever had dark thoughts about that one.
Deimos: I was just thinking that maybe after this baby--
Victor: Uh, uh, uh! I don't wanna hear. In fact, the less I hear about Chloe lane the better. In fact, this conversation never took place.
Deimos: There is a price to pay for what you've done, Chloe. Yes, indeed.
Chloe: What are you doing here? What the hell do you know?
